    Hunting Apps

    I have used 2 hunting apps Huntstand and Scoutlook. I basically wanted something I could use a mapping feature on - mark property lines, stands, cams, deer sign etc. I didn't like the 'feel' of scout look, just seemed clunky to me. I have become a fan of huntstand. It feels easier to use to me. You can look up property lines on it, although I have found for my place, it is off a bit. I do like the ease you can add different waypoints and even trace a path you walk (although you can't do anything else with the phone while you do it). If you are going to be in an area out of cell service, if you zoom in on the area you will be hunting while you do have cell service, it will remember that zoomed area for 30? days. you can also share a hunting area with someone else who has the app. They can be set to view only or be able to add things to the map. I wish you could copy or duplicate a map for this, but you can't. For example I want my partners to be able to see the trails, and stands but maybe not my scouting finds..... I have to use 2 different maps, 1 for me, 1 to share..... small price I think. Best of all it is free, albeit with some popup ads unless you want to pay to get rid of them. All in all, I like it. I haven't used my garmin gps in several years.

    Moultrie flash extender external power

    Thanks. It is 12v, found some batteries and checked it - problem solved. I must have been thinking about the 6 batteries/9v that brownings use... but since they will power off of a 12v sla, do they have some kind of voltage regulator or something in them? Just curious.
  3. I have a few moultrie external flash extenders (external flashes) and they eat batteries. (these were necessary because Ralph said the timing is different from commercial infrared cams and his product would not work) They take the same 8 AA battery tray (@9v output) that the moultrie cams do. The moutlrie cams have a 12v external power jack for hooking up a 12v sla for power. The flashes have no power jack. Im thinking they can be powered with a 12v sla as well if you solder leads onto the terminal ends of the battery tray. Would some type of regulator be required to keep the voltage in the 9v range? If so what and how. Im guessing that the cameras have some type of regulator built into them from the factory?

    Kwikee Quiver Male bracket

    I think it was bcraft that made the kwikee mounts years ago. You can get the male bohning part in your picture if you call them and ask for it (its not listed on their website) - I did this a year or 2 ago. It is easy enough to attach the bohning lever lock (female side) to a kwikee quiver bracket caddy here is a link to a thread where we were looking for them... part number 931 http://www.hagshouse.com/forums/index.php?/topic/55466-wtb-kwickee-quiver-mounting-brackets/&tab=comments#comment-418581 and befus mod http://www.hagshouse.com/forums/index.php?/topic/55530-alteration-of-bohning-attachment-for-kwickee-kwiver-bracket/&tab=comments#comment-418710

    Loss of a Hagshouse Member

    So very sorry for his family. I never had the opportunity to meet or talk with him, but he was always so helpful in the forums. He was definitely one who helped to make this site the great place it is. He will be missed, but we will always be reminded of him as we scroll through the forums!

    P41 Power Bar?

    Have a p41 giving me some trouble. Went to check card, cam took pic of me. Swapped cards, could not turn cam back on with power button to format card. Turned board back on and it powers cam on and off like normal. Took cam home and now the power button is working.... Any ideas what is going on? Power bar going bad? Ribbon (can't remember which one) dislodged and moving it knocked it back in place? Intermittent problems are so frustrating...... On a related topic, is there a way to test a power bar to see if it is good? I have a p41 that was damaged and there is hope that power bar is still good

    Ssii Missing Night Pics

    I have a ssII, 503 build that is missing pics. Cam is on bait and it is being eaten so I know deer are there. It seems to get quite a few day pics - tree rats, turkeys and my uncle bringing bait in, but it isn't getting many night pics - as in maybe one or 2 a night.... I am assuming that having a bad ssII battery is the culprit? I just changed it out today, will see if it makes a difference... Wonder why it seems to do fine during the day?- because it is a bit warmer out and the battery is a bit better? Just curious.

    Ssii Missing Night Pics

    The cam has the small cap mod, AA externals, with a 2800, always use Garys batteries for board. It has always worked fine. I will see in the morning if a different battery made a difference.
  14. I would try these for my daughter if it works.

    What Do You Do To Pass The Time?

    I preplan likely shooting spots and play guess the distance with my range finder, then Facebook and google random ideas that I think up - more so when Im hunting a field edge, and probably too much when Im in the woods lol. Sometimes I really wonder what in the world I did before smartphones were here to entertain me......

  19. Good to know. Glad you got the part ordered finally.

    Talked To One Of Our Members On Phone

    I often wonder how the guys are doing that helped me so often throughout the years in this hobby. It is good to see the folks that made this forum the great place it is today check in.
  21. The best price (with shipping) I found for the Bohning lever lock (female side) was at Gander mountain $4.99, free shipping to store if one is close to you.
  22. Kdornski, the hard to find part of these mounts was the plastic male piece, it was made by bohning. Actually I think the hard part is getting a person from Bohning on the phone that wants to help you. The part you posted is indeed what screws into the tree, with the Bohning female part on it. I have heard the Kwikee female side works with some trimming….
  23. I just got off the phone right now ordering them. Ordered 10 @ $4.99 each. $8.50 for the female side - I think I found that cheaper somewhere else once. Tanya (couldn't understand it) was the one I spoke to, she asked if i had just called about that and spoke to Karen…. must have been you, befus. Try calling back and speak to someone else.
